California wildfire: Thousands evacuated in Ventura County

Staff is walking around the campus to help.

At least 500 firefighters were battling the blaze.

The winds were part of the season's "strongest and longest" Santa Ana event.

California Governor Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency, freeing state funds and resources to assist. The fire, which has burned as much as two times the size of Manhattan, blew through the city of Ventura, and struck close to home, quite literally, for one buzzing rap star. The California Highway Patrol said the closures would last an unknown duration. At least 150 structures have been destroyed and thousands of people have evacuated.

In just three hours, the fire grew from 500 to 10,000 acres and remained 0% contained into Tuesday morning.
